APPI Membership

Who Should Join APPI?

APPI membership eligibility applies to rendering plants in the United States and Canada engaged in the processing of animal and poultry by-products & fats & oils into finished protein meals. The category of APPI Associate Members is now combined with NRA Associate Members—available to those entities that are otherwise ineligible for active membership, but have a common interest with the members.
